Develop a Nonlinear Regression Model Using Box-Cox Transformation with Application
Keywords:Multiple linear regression, Box-Cox transformation
This article introduces an algorithm designed for utilizing power transformations in the estimation of nonlinear regression models. The algorithm outlines a series of steps for selecting the most suitable power parameter estimate through a combination of the conventional Maximum Likelihood Estimation technique and specific criteria for enhancing statistical modeling effectiveness. Supplementary decision guidelines involve the utilization of the determination coefficient and the p-value from the errors normality test. The algorithm's application was demonstrated using actual data. The article's conclusion highlighted the ability to identify a range of feasible solutions for selecting the optimal power parameter. However, it was acknowledging the challenge of identifying a single optimal value that satisfies the requirements of all estimation and decision methodologies.
